ryan & kate: married!

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of witnessing the marriage celebration of Ryan & Kate. If you are an avid follower of the JWP blog, you may recognize this lovely couple from back in May when we did their engagement shoot in Grand Rapids (and if you missed it, I just provided you with a link ;)).

Well, their engagement is over and these two are married! It was a wonderful celebration and I had a fun time being apart of the day! The ceremony took place at Rosewood Reformed Church in Jenison and the reception was held in the Grand River Room of the Kirkhof Center at Grand Valley State University. Here is a little preview of their big day!

Ryan & Kate - thanks for letting me be apart of your celebration! I wish you two the best as newlyweds - enjoy the preview!

A few more details...
Kate & Ryan opted to do a "first look" so we could do portraits beforehand...Love this moment! That little boy is Ryan's son, Ethan... he snuck up after a few minutes to see Kate...The guys:The ladies:
So sweet...
Ryan - you were a handsome groom and Kate - you were such a beautiful bride!!

Seriously!? Look how beautiful she is!
Ryan was soooo happy and emotional all day - it was a delight to witness!The rings & the kiss!

Finally married! Woohoo!
Then the bridal party hopped on the party bus and met us downtown for some shots! Look how fun this party was:A simple, quiet moment....Off to the reception @ GVSUI believe this is when Chad said, "Ryan this is the last time you'll have the upper hand"Throw that bouquet, girl!Look closely and you'll see my favorite October couple from last year, Dan & Katie...Thanks for an awesome day, Ryan & Kate! Best wishes!!
